THY KINGDOM COME, THY WILL BE DONE, ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN

‘There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, “Thy will be done,” and those to whom God says, “All right, then, have it your way.” – CS Lewis

1. Which kind of person are you? Why do you think it is so important to pray, “Thy will be done”?

Our Father in heaven, holy be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  A simple definition of the expression kingdom of God is “the rule and reign of God.”

2. People sometimes think that God’s kingdom is the same as heaven. Just from what you see in this verse, why is that an insufficient description of the kingdom?

  1. So many consider His will to be mysterious. Yet much of His will is plainly given to us in Scripture.
    It is true that His overall Sovereign will is not clear to us at this time. He has made clear His general will for all mankind and His general will for His children.
    For those of His children who are willing to trust Him and obey Him He makes clear His specific will for them.
    The will of God is both very complex and also quite straightforward.
    Blessings to you and your ministry for Him.

  2. BOB,

    WELCOME TO BIBLICAL JOY. I RESONATE WITH THIS ANSWER BECAUSE IT REMINDS US THAT GOD’S REVELATION ALSO CARRIES GOD’S WILL FOR US – INCLUDING AS INDIVIDUALS. OBEDIENCE IS THE KEY TO DEALING WITH GOD’S WILL.
